About Guelder Gardens
Welcome to Guelder Gardens! I am Isabella and I live in Petersfield in the middle of the beautiful South Downs. Guelder Gardens is named after Guelders, the area of the Netherlands where I grew up and where my mother Elisabeth taught me a love of plants and gardens from an early age. As a Dutch native I am naturally fond of growing bulbs and other plants.
I am an RHS-trained gardener caring for gardens from Petersfield to Salisbury and from West Wittering to London. My gardening expertise includes design and soft landscaping, weeding and pruning, soil, plant and lawn care. As volunteer gardeners in the Physic Garden Petersfield, my husband Fred and I are responsible for the historic vegetable patch. It is very inspiring to research historical plants and vegetables, and to enrich our knowledge while we work.
I am committed to environmentally-friendly gardening and look forward to creating lively outdoor spaces for you.
